I was going to give the low down on the entire kitchen and the sources for all items but that turned out to be a huge post so I’ll do it in parts.
See Part One. Part Two: The Prep Counter with Stove and Refrigerator
The kitchen was a completely new addition added onto our old house. The prep counter window overlooks the driveway.
The countertop was custom-made by LightBlocks. We hired our cabinet supplier to make a template which was then shipped to New Hampshire to be made into a two-piece, seamless countertop from a product called LightCast.
From left to right we have a side-by-side refrigerator, microwave (tucked beside the fridge), prep sink, work counter, stove and more counter.
After 6 months of use, I love the LightCast, I love my prep sink, and I especially love ice and water on the refrigerator door.
The light in the window is on a dimmer.
There are undercabinet lighting strips at each corner.
The prep side of the kitchen is very functional and keeps the action away from the peninsula side so two people can easily work simultaneously.
Ask any questions you like and I’ll try to answer.Sources:
